or not to join a union. until tonight you had to join a union. >> eric: more interesting to that is that they closed school districts in and around the detroit area because teachers decided to protest instead of teaching the kids. >> gretchen: that is insane. especially when you think of snow days coming. in fact minnesota had 18 inches of snow and protestors that they can make it out of minnesota to get to state of michigan. now the kids are going to suffer? it is a repercussion of this? >> eric: what are the teachers teaching the kids by not showing up to work and protesting a right to work legislation that is passed legally and no tricks done. they vote add for a republican governor who said he would do that and he did do that. >> steve: kids will learn how teachers get a day off. calling in sick. talking about taylor, michigan. so many teachers called in sick superintendents said we'll take tomorrow off, kids. see you back here on wednesday. the president of the united states was in michigan and he said right to work thing, sure you have heard the stories about good w

the union got an injunction to open the doors. so what provoked all this today? >> well, if you look at it, it's really about freedom to choose. it's about being pro worker and stepping up for the workers in our state. we need workplace equality and fairness and that's what this legislation is all about is giving workers a choice to join a union or not. >> it's sort of interesting, michigan, the united auto workers, the teamsters, lots of unions and afl-cio members. this is sort of interesting to watch this happen in your state. i'm curious, what do you hope to achieve economically by this legislation, this right to work legislation? >> well, it should have very positive economic consequences. step back and look at it. the history of unions have been strong in michigan and they did a lot of good things in terms of working conditions and work issues and people wanted to join unions. but today shouldn't we give workers the choice and give them the opportunity do they want to belong to a union or not? i don't view it as anti-union. they are more proactive to presenting it to workers and say t

union membership and dues optional in the heart of the rust belt. cradle of the organized labor. they insist they are not breaking the labor union because it does not target collective bargaining. this weakens their foundation. >> you have people alongside of you that won't pay the union dues if you pay the union dues but will still be able to get the benefit from being union member. >> spokesman for democratic caucus says to anticipate legal challenge is understatement. democrats will target the language in the laws. given the bill through the lame duck session and noisy demonstrators out of the chambers the democrats say they will challenge under the open meetings laws. >> they lied to us every step of the way and they are acting like cowards. >> he says it's leadership. >> baloney. >> as demonstrators storm the capitol, police used pepper spray. additional state troopers sent to lansing today with anticipation that the demonstrations will peak on tuesday. >> we want to keep things safe. we will not have another wisconsin in michigan. people have a right to protest. but it wil
capital yesterday, and it's not over. why are these unions so angry about giving workers free choice? why is so much of the news media carrying the union's water by not reporting the story? we'll have some answers in just a little while. now, the market gyrated today over ben bernanke and the fed. at first they loved the new bond buying and money printing message. but then they gave up all their gains feeling unemployment may drop faster and the party would somehow be over. i'm not sure i understand this but we'll ask our experts mike, i gue i guess the idea is maybe the unemployment gets to 6.5% and the 0 interest rate goes up, why would that be bad? sometimes i don't understand the stock market at all. >> i don't think it's the employment figure. i think it's the inflation number that bernanke threw out there, larry. you also mentioned 2.5% inflation as being certainly that would look him put the brakes on. we look at treasuries relative to tips, it's a at 3.08%. i think the market is saying we might be where bernanke is talking about inflation and putting on the brakes. i think that's

in the house, one passed as you said, 51-48. that is the public union portion of the right-to-work law. that passed the house. now with the house is going to do is vote on a senate bill on private unions and that is also expected to pass. once that does if it does, it's expected that measure will head to governor rick snider's desk where he is expected to sign it. i did talk to protesters here, i let them know that the first part did pass. one teacher i talked with who came out today said they're not listening to us standing out here. at the same time another person in favor of the measure came up to me and said, what's the latest? i said the first measure passed and she jumped up and said, yeah. you are feeling the tension start to happen here. one thing that happened 40 minutes ago a tent i don't know if you can see it there, a tent, that tent was actually for a group in favor of the right-to-work measure and one point, the unions tore it down. union members tore it down, presumably out of -- out of the tents -- the anger and the tense feeling that they are feeling here today in fron

in the heartland of the united states. perhaps no place in america more closely associated with unions than the state of michigan. and today, thousands of union workers descended on the capital to protest a new law they believe could be an ominous signal for unions and worker paychecks everywhere. here's abc's alex perez. >> reporter: the anger boiling over. officers turning to pepper spray to control the crowd at least 10,000 deep. but it wasn't enough. michigan republican lawmakers approving landmark legislation, lifting the requirement that workers in unionized workplaces pay union dues. an army of officers have been guarding the governor's office all day. some of these demonstrators have been here since 5:00 this morning. the republican governor has signed the law. >> with a stroke of a pen, take our rights away. it's offensive. >> reporter: supporters call it right to work, but unions say it's nothing less than an effort to cut their bargaining power. less dues means less influence. the afl-cio says the average worker in right to work states earns $1,500 less than workers in states wit

in michigan could not stop lawmakers from passing bills that hurt union power. this could have a major impact on unions nationwide. the feds accuse a big bank of doing business with iran, cuba and libya and mexican drug cartels to the tune of billions and billions of dollars. who did they arrest? nobody in who are they trying to arrest? nobody. there is a fine. we will get to that. put down the cough syrup. pick up chocolate candy. researchers say chocolate could be more effective treatment in treating the common cough. that is all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b" today. first from fox at 3:00 in new york city, a major blow to labor unions wait for the michigan governor's signature. today, state lawmakers pass add measure that weakens labor unions while crowds of protesters rallied need and outside the statehouse. the demonstration is getting ugly. get the [blank] camera. >>shepard: the demonstrators are fighting the republican legislature and republican governor who says he will sign the so-called right-to-work bill into law. it would make it illegal to force
's failures. >> is this the usual stuff that the government unions pay themselves too much, their pensions are too big, their health benefits are too big and therefore they're bankrupting the city? is that the principal cause here? >> that's a major part of it. this is the culture that's been going on for 50, 60 years in detroit. you've got the big unions there that are just taking their cut of it, keep wrachratcheting it more, but you also have a culture of ineptitude in detroit. right now you have kwame kilpatrick on trial for corruption. you have monica conyers, wife of john conyers, the congressman, who is ready to get out of jail in a couple weeks for her corruption charges. this is what detroit is about. ineptitude, corruption, and big union thuggery. maybe that's redundant. >> where is mayor dave bing on this? i thought he was going to be here. i know governor snyder has tried to essentially take over detroit, but i don't think he succeeded. so where is bing on this? >> dave bing has come out and said yeah, people have an entitlement mentality. the workers in the city of detroit, he
